Introduction to Pediatric Ophthalmology | Eye Center Lay Forum

In the pursuit of spreading awareness about Pediatric Ophthalmology, the UCMed Eye Center team conducted a Lay Forum entitled “Introduction to Pediatric Ophthalmology.” 

The Lay Forum took place at the UCMed 6th Floor Conference Hall on February 23, 2024, from 2-4 PM.

About 45 UCMed Senior Clerks, Post-Graduate Interns (PGIs), and Pediatric Resident Doctors participated in the Lecture.

Dr. Bryan Tan, Eye Center Unit Head, graced the event with welcoming remarks and formally introduced the Guest Speaker for the day. 

Dr. Andrew Cuizon, the UCMed Pediatric Ophthalmology, and Strabismus Specialist, facilitated the two-part lecture.

Dr. Cuizon recently (2023) finished his Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus fellowship at East Avenue Medical Center (DOH Eye Center), where he was able to cater to a number of patients at the said Institution as well as from the National Children’s Hospital and Philippine Children’s Medical Center.

The first part of the event was a video lecture covering the growth and development, approach to pediatric patients, and abnormalities in pediatric ophthalmology. The second part of the lay forum concentrates on retinopathy of prematurity.

The event’s success brought insights into how to deeply understand children’s needs in developing their visual skills, determining the early signs of eye problems, and profound proper eye care.

Abbvie Philippines Inc. generously sponsored the UCMed Eye Center lecture with delightful snacks for the attendees.

The program ended with a photo opportunity with all the participants. The engaging lecture concluded leaving participants with remarkable inputs into the expertise of the medical community.
